Brewed by:
Port Brewing
California, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Is it really safe to paddle out in our waters? It's impossible to know for sure. What we do know is that this is an incredibly distinctive and bold American red ale that attacks your taste buds with lethal amounts of hops which are balanced by a boat load of Crystal malt. If none of this fazes you, then maybe swimming in the shark filled waters is exactly where you belong. We'll see you in the lineup!

The appearance on this beer is fantastic and exactly how I like my ales. The color on this beer is a very nice golden-brown with a tint of orange when held to the light. It poured a pretty big head, about three fingers, and you can barely see through this beer.

The aroma on this beer is interesting. I get very few hops but big malt notes. I also get a subtle caramel smell to it as well.

The taste on this beer is very different than anything I have had in the past. It drinks very thick. In the beginning of drinking this beer, you get an alcohol kick with it being at 9% ABV. Then you get some subtle hops in the middle. This is a very full-bodied beer. There are no surprises but just a nice, thick beer.

Overall, this is a fantastic choice for any time of the year. I would recommend it.
